Parish History

Our Lady, St George and St Denys, Manchester, the Cathedral Church, is the ancient parish and was founded in Druidic times. Here is an 1848 historical perspective of Greater Manchester, by topographer, Samuel Lewis, taken from Topographical Dictionary of England. By 1880, Manchester had about 150 chapels of ease and district churches/chapels attached to it, serving its many boundary divisions. See A Comprehensive List of All Pre-1851 Manchester Parishes and Chapelries.

The Collegiate Church of Manchester foundation in 1421 enabled the Dean and Fellows of the Collegiate Church to control the rapid growth of the Ancient Parish population to the pecuniary advantage of the Collegiate Church. A useful background article by Henry Mantell  http://www.aidan.co.uk/article_manchester_cathedral.htm explains the influence of the Dean and Fellows of the Collegiate church on Manchester Parish records.

The lack of Manchester Churches and practice of the Collegiate church contributed to the formation of the Manchester Diocese in 1847 and subsequent Diocesan building programe.

Manchester Our Lady, St George and St Denys is the Ancient Parish and perhaps the largest market town in the county of Lancashire and quite probably, about the largest ancient parish in the realm.

Civil Registration

Birth, marriages and deaths were kept by the government, from July 1837 to the present day. The civil registration article tells more about these records (See under "England" main page).

There are two important online sites with indexes to the births, marriages and deaths. These are:

  • FreeBMD.- index to the GRO (General Register Offices) BMDs)
  • Lancashire Births, Marriages and Deaths at the Lancashire BMD - indexes to the local BMDs held at (the superintendent) registrar offices throughout most of Lancashire

If, for example, a certificate cannot be located in the FreeBMD index website, then try the local registrar offices website at Lancashire BMD to find it. often this proves successful in locating the appropriate certificate.
